Like Ride The Lightning, this is a really special album for me. I heard this album so many times yet I never really get tired of it, it has my favorite Muse songs on it like ''Map Of The Problematique'' and ''Glorious'' (even though that's a bonus track), and it's just really enjoyable overall.

I also saw Muse live in 2019 and it was spectacular, they played 5 songs from this album including ''Knights Of Cydonia'' as the final song as they do with every show. It's an experience I won't ever ... read more

(Band Binge: Muse Part Four of Six)

Yep, it's their best album. It's not my favorite album, but it's their best.

I think Muse play it best when they are shooting for the stars.

This is an album that has impacted me and my tastes in a way few albums ever will. It was my favorite record of all time for two years, and it still means the world to me, but I’m in a place right now where it doesn’t do as much for me. I hope it’s just a spell, but I’m going to refrain from putting a score on this album because it’s tough to rate something that is this important to me. I definitely still love it, and can’t stress enough how grateful I am ... read more

A 10/10 album... for the first four tracks, which are each stellar in their own way. Then, the album drifts into mediocrity for the middle of its tracklist before coming back again with City of Delusion to the end. Knights of Cydonia remains their most stellar closing track to this day. A good album overall.

Best Tracks: Take A Bow, Starlight, Supermassive Black Hole, Map of the Problematique, City of Delusion, Hoodoo, Knights of Cydonia

Worst Tracks: Invincible, Exo-Politics
